it's so cool when we get to live out our science projects in real-time. we built a rocket to finish out our astronomy study before we dove headlong into botany.
Littlest got thirsty. He drank much of the water we had for our experiment.
E., as usual, took a few climbing breaks.
Blue decided sand was more fun.
Alka-Seltzer didn't so much work for us. We tried vinegar and baking soda (isn't that always the fallback for a homemade experiment?) It bombed, too, and not in the right way. The top of our film cannister kept popping off before we could set our rocket aright. In the end, we just enjoyed watching the film canister explode. After I explained what film canisters were for, back in the old days. Sigh.
not sharing coffee and camera is not well received.
